Florida lands four-star guard Mann

Four-star recruit Tre Mann of Florida announced Tuesday he will stay home to play for the Gators in 2019.

Mann, a 6-foot-3 guard from The Villages Charter High School in The Villages, chose Florida over Kansas, North Carolina and Tennessee.

Mann is the Gators’ first commitment for the Class of 2019.

“Every time I looked up, Coach Mike White was at one of my games. He recruited me real hard. He told me he would not let me fail. That impressed me,” Mann told ESPN. “Their style of play fits me just perfect. They shoot a lot of threes, and that’s what I do best. Plus it’s close to home.”
